God’s Purposes for Older Age
St George’s is hosting a short conference by Pilgrims’ Friend Society, a leading Christian charity working with and for older people.
10am – 1pm on Saturday 20th October.
This is not just a conference for older people. It is for anyone who wants to see churches places where older people are valued, supported and used by God to bless others.
Why restoring the Biblical view of old age is vital today.
A look at the Scriptural view of old age and how restoring this in today’s culture will benefit people of all ages.
Church Pastoral Care
Not just pastoral care… how we can build links with younger Christians?
Living God’s purpose in senior years
The importance of recognising the different cultures of older people, and how they can be enabled and empowered to fulfil the role God intended for them.
We have three highly-experienced speakers: the Chief Executive of PFS (former Director of Tearfund), a former psychogeriatric nurse and care home manager, and the author of numerous books on old age and dementia.
Bookings must be done through the PFS website: https://www.pilgrimsfriend.org.uk/Event/gods-purposes-in-later-life
Cost: £10. Refreshments provided. Please bring a packed lunch.

Journey of the Magi– A festive, witty and thoroughly Christmassy event for your church
Share the joy and wonder of Christmas with your church and local community through this exhilarating, critically acclaimed performance. With sparkle and songs to keep the children engrossed and bags of good humour for the grown-ups, Journey of the Magi delights audiences of all ages. The show offers a bridge between contemporary life and Jesus’s birth, portraying the journey that the wise men took 2000 years ago, whilst drawing hilarious and poignant parallels with our own preparations for Christmas day.
“Fantastic production, full of life, colour and emotion. A really powerful piece of modern theatre with so many layers to touch and challenge our souls. Thank you.”
Rev Cameron Stirk, Emmanuel Methodist Barnsley
